Week 7 Assignment

I didn’t read the “complete either A or B” of the week 7 assignment and ended up doing both.  This is highly unusual for me to go above and beyond the call of duty so I thought I would post my plagiarism assignment (part B) since I thought it was a good one.   Plagiarism- Lesson […]

7.2 Flickr

Having some issues embedding the video into the blog as a slideshow.  The best I can do is link to my Favourite’s Page with all my creative commons photos I wanted to use in my slideshow. https://www.flickr.com/gp/146042360@N02/d26245 I do not get the “Share” logo on my album when it is running in slideshow.  I only […]

7.1 Emerging Tech in the Classroom

For a Middle School or High School English class, the obvious routes would be the content creating technologies.  Implementing Digital Story Telling or Broadcasting in either vodcasts or podcasts would have creative learning with (hopefully) meaningful outcomes since the final product can be shared online.  The projects could be tied into a novel study, or […]

5.1 TEC-variety and SAMR Evaluation of two assignments

Assignment:  grade 8 Students were assigned an i-pad, and used an app (I’ve emailed the teacher to see what app it was) that displayed a musical/visual storyboard, of maybe 10 pixar quality — fairy talesque pictures in chronological order.  Students were tasked with creating a narrative story, in French, to go along with the pictures. […]

Social Bookmarking

Looking over our Professor’s Social Bookmarking Diigo Page I am doing the same thing but a lot less efficiently using my bookmark feature on Firefox.  It’s not transferable from computer to computer and I can’t share the social bookmarking with other students or teachers unless they are borrowing my computer.   But in reality, I don’t […]

DPA and Digital Literacy

Daily Physical Activity (DPA) has become a routine in our district.  For 15-20 minutes a day, students are encouraged to do something active — it can be as simple as a walk around the school ground, or as complex as a classroom designed game — but usually it is another task for the teacher to […]

The Technological Help Team!!

Part of maneuvering through the  Knowledge Based Society we live in, is being able to assess, rate, and manage the knowledge we need.  We don’t need a floodlight to find what we’re looking for, when a flashlight will do.  It’s all about focus. There is a ton of free information online regarding the use of […]

New RSS Feeds

This was like a magic bullet for me.  I had no idea of RSS feeds.  Now I need a feedreader.  I subscribed to a few, but find the FeedReader.com the best.  But I will probably set up my Evernote app and turn it into an RSS Feed Reader. I added  my 5 RSS feeds to […]
